Google as a Quick Dictionary

For a quick definition of a word using Google use either “define:” or “definition” with the word you don’t understand.

For example, to get an explanation of the word “whisper”, go to Google and enter:  define:whisper  or whisper definition  (usually just “whisper def” will work)

Google will give you a lot of information, including:

  • Explanations of the word
  • Usually a sample sentence
  • An option to translate the word into other languages
  • On computers, you can also listen to pronunciation

For many words, seeing a picture can be very helpful.  Google Images is very good for that.
